The flagship model, and of course the perfect choice of front speaker in a Tempus surround system, is the 3-way Tempus 77 bass reflex floorstanding speaker. The speaker, which stands slightly over 1 m in height, is equipped with two 170 mm FE Dynamics woofers and a mid-range driver of the same diameter. The Klippel-optimized construction ensures maximum load capacity and optimum precision in all frequency ranges. With its dispersion-optimized sound guide and powerful neodymium drive, the newly developed 25 mm fmax tweeter generates an exquisite resolution. The chassis are located in a sturdy, particularly low-resonance housing consisting of E1-MDF panels. Thanks to its excellent efficiency rating of 92 dB, the Tempus series permits a high degree of flexibility when it comes to selecting an amplifier.

"...The performance of the whole Tempus team was nothing to sneeze at. The 5.1 set very vividly put into scene movie soundtracks and offered a wide and solid sound stage."

"Magnat knows what is essential about speakers. This becomes obvious right from the beginning when listening to the speakers of the Tempus series and thus it is not surprising that the surround ensemble has almost completely convinced us. Considering their truly fair price combined with their spectacular sound it is easy to ignore some minor details like the speaker feet or the grille made of plastic – especially as one will anyway prefer to look into the wood-panelled face of the Tempus. Only substantially more expensive speakers will offer a tiny bit more plasticity. If you are not willing to pay some hundred Euros more for some subtleties of sound, you can buy Tempus speakers without hesitation. (...)"
Test review (SFT, 07/2017)
"With their Tempus 77 Magnat have successfully shuffled up the crowded market for upper entry-level floor-standing speakers. Thanks to their good workmanship and nice appearance, but most notably thanks to their surprisingly mature, harmonious sound and high detail resolution, the Tempus 77 not only perform masterfully, but directly advance to the top of their class. Their high sensitivity and outstanding ability to generate high volumes are additional plus factors."
